The City of Norwich is proud to be a member of the Last Green Valley. The Last Green Valley is a National Heritage Corridor comprised of 35 towns in Eastern Connecticut and Southern Massachusetts. The Last Green Valley, Inc. (TLGV) is a nonprofit charitable organization established in 1995. They are advocates for the fragile and irreplaceable resources of The Last Green Valley. Founded as a grassroots organization, and built upon a proven track record of success and partnerships, TLGV is ensuring a natural and cultural legacy for generations to come.
During the past 30 years, the Last Green Valley has been sponsoring walks which began as Walking Weekends in October and which have morphed from one weekend of guided walking tours to a month long event called Walktober. Norwich’s participation in Walktober has grown exponentially over the past few years and we are pleased to have offered over 35 walks and events in Norwich for Walktober 2019. The Norwich Historical Society is proud to coordinate Norwich’s Walktober experiences. In 2020, the Norwich Historical Society coordinated virtual experiences which can be accessed on the Last Green Valley’s website and YouTube channel.
